Tasting Notes

One of the finest traditional Reservas on the market and incredible value. If this was Bordeaux or Burgundy, the price would be much higher. Blackcurrant, plum, cranberry, raspberry, aniseed, tobacco, vanilla, violets and cola. Medium to full bodied, incredibly fresh and vibrant, certainly firm and serious. Flecks of savoury spice, dried fruit and firm mineral tannins. I love the interplay between the fresh pure fruit and the tertiary notes. It’s as if you have the best of both worlds – a mature wine and a new vintage.

The Producer

Bodega Akutain

Bodega Akutain’s history begins in the early 1970’s with the small family property’s founder, Juan Peñagaricano Akutain. Señor Akutain forged bonds with the families behind some of the Rioja region’s most storied traditionalist estates, including CVNE and La Rioja Alta.

After many years spent visiting the cellars, studying local vineyard techniques, and drinking every bottle of Rioja he could lay his hands on (all the while saving his earnings), Akutain was ready to plant his own vineyards.

He spent a few years searching for the perfect site and finally, in 1975, he found his dream property located just west of the village of Haro, the epicenter of Rioja.
